Try Using a Plunger


It is important that we first try one of the most simple steps that can resolve your clogged drain. First approach the plug hole of the blocked drain most commonly it will be a sink. You will use a half cup plunger to help force the clogged drain to clear. Most simple drain blockages will be simply resolved after the use of a plunger. Once the drain has become unclogged this will result in all the water clearing from the sink. We would also advise you turn on the tap after the blockage has cleared to help wash the blockage away. If the plunger hasn’t cleared the blockage it is time to move on to the unclogging tool of your choice.  


Next Use an Unclogging Tool


We would advise that if the plunger has not cleared the blockage you should look at using an unclogging tool. The use of an unclogging tool will help clear any small blockages within your drain. Simply place one end of the unclogging tool into the plug hole and feed the tool deeper into the drain. Once you find the blockage use the tool to break up the blockage and clear the drain. It is considered the best practice to turn on the tap after the blockage has cleared to help flush the blockage away. If the unclogging tool of your choice has not helped to clear the blockage it’s time to use a liquid drain cleaner.


Try Using a Liquid Drain Cleaner


Liquid drain cleaners are renowned for offering a quick solution to a clogged drain. Simply apply your liquid drain cleaner to the hole of the sink and this will help to clear your blockage. The way liquid drain cleaners work is that they will cause a reaction with the blockage to help break down the blockage and help it to clear. We advise that you only use liquid drain cleaners as a last resort as they can be very hazardous.
